Daphne Iking Got EnticedEntice or enticing, such a strong word in a negative perspective isn't it ? Especially when it involves a high profile Malaysian celebrity, Daphne Iking. For further understanding, the meaning of entice or enticing is equivalent to seducing, tempting or put it simply in Malay, cubaan untuk menggoda. *december latest update-court trial*
As reported in Malaysian news, the husband of celebrity TV presenter Daphne Iking or Daphne Eleanor Iking is accusing a corporate figure of “enticing” his wife. Who is the corporate figure ?
Darren Choy Kin Ming, the MD for Adidas Malaysia was tried in court for keeping Daphne Iking away from her husband. Daphne’s husband has dragged the managing director to court under Section 498 of the Penal Code for “enticing or taking away or detaining with a criminal intent a married woman.”
The appearance of two other lawyers, Ravi Nekoo and Pushpa Ratnam representing Daphne Iking, took the court by surprise when the former told magistrate Mohd Faizi Che Abu that they were there to hold a watching brief for Iking and may file to ask questions later.
Even before the hearing began, things got heated with lawyers from both sides at loggerheads over an application to adjourn the trial. At one point, they even got into a shouting match.
Choy’s lead counsel Jagjit Singh sought for an adjournment saying he was recovering from a recent heart ailment and needed more time to study the documents which he had been receiving in stages.
Jagjit tendered medical certificates to the court to prove that he was medically unfit to proceed. He told the court that the documents he received included the marriage certificate, passport copies, e-mails and invoices.
To a question by the magistrate, Pushpa said she would make a formal application to challenge the summons and the constitutionality of Section 498.
“It is archaic and no longer has a place in society. It is a total affront to women to suggest that we can be so easily enticed and so stupid enough to be enticed,” she said.
Mohd Faizi adjourned the case to today and said he would deal with Pushpa’s application when a formal application was submitted to court. Jagjit, he added, could cross-examine in October if he felt unwell today
Iking got married on Jan 27, 2007 in Bali, and gave birth to Isobel, who is now 21 months old. Iking is a TV presenter, host and brand ambassador.
To any guys, please don't even try to entice any woman especially if she is a well known celebrity or even a mother !! Behave yourself please..its so shameful !!
